Author Wilbur Smith gone at 88.

His BBC obituary says he wrote about "early African history" like the gold rush (in the 1880s).

 

The inhabitants of Blombos Cave were unavailable for comment.

I was reading his Wikipedia article recently and it struck me how old he was. Truly one of the 20th century's great composers.

 

 

There was a story a while back about a composer who had Alzheimer's but had managed to compose a new symphony with his sons help. Somebody sent it to Sondheim as he was this blokes hero, and Sondheim sent a video message to the bloke praising his symphony. A lovely gesture and it made the old bloke so happy it was lovely to see.

 

Seems Sondheim was a good man as well as being an immense talent.
